This is an OK campground with dirt roads and tight/short sites. The stes were well marked. They had great management, I came in late and my registration packet was in the night registration box waiting for me with clear instructions on where my site was and how to get to it. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the attractions in the area. They provided maps with the attractions and distance/time to get there from the park. W-Ffi worked great from my site. There were mo problems with the hookups. There was a really nice tent area with shade a grass, but the RV area was pretty much just a dirt parking lot. Two ponds on site with big koi and catfish. The campground is far enough away from the interstate and the railroad, so noise is not a problem.

Very clean park. Brand new picnic tables. Office staff was friendly and a good source of local info. Close to public transportation. Very convenient to local attractions. The park is located along side of I-40, so there is noise from highway traffic. The noise was not a problem from our site near the office. Wi-Fi worked great while we were there.

Stopped here for an overnight. Easy access from I-95. Park is a little run down, but power was good, cable was crystal clear, wifi was weak from my spot. My site was easy to get into and out of, with plenty of room to leave the towed attached. Priced well for a KOA. I would stay here again.

Stopped here for an overnight. Less than 1/2 mile from I-95, some highway noise but not bad. Utilities are in excellent shape. Crystal clear cable with 70+ channels. Wifi works well. Interior roads are a little tight, but sites are wide and long enough to leave the towed attached for the night. Staff was polite and registration was quick and smooth. I would stay here again if in the area.

One of the nicest parks I've stayed in. Very clean and quiet. Cleanest, nicest, cheapest laundry facilities I've used in months. Pool and hot tub area is all new. There is only a row of daily/weekly sites that are all pull through. All the other sites are for monthly terms. Although they can use any site, the daily row is the easiest to get in and out of. Friendly, helpful, accommodating staff. Close to I-17 and the 101. Don't confuse this park with Desert Sands, the two are vastly different. I'll be returning here for the winter.

Easy to find, right off I-5. Narrow access road, right behind small shopping center with McD's, coffee kiosk, and a Mexican Rest, as well as other stores. It's an easy short walk from your site to any of the stores. Sites are very close together, but with enough room to extend all slides and awning, I've been in smaller sites. 50A service, water, sewer, crystal clear cable, and FREE WiFi. Our site was at least 65' long, plenty of room with the towed connected. Paved interior roads and sites. Not really grass between sites, more of a dirt, not really gravel. Staff was friendly and very checked us in and gave detailed directions to our site. Lots of permanents, and I believe working class people living here, however, their sites were kept clean and not messy. Not much shade, good for satellite, bad for hot sunny days, if you get those in Oregon. I would definitely come back for a night or two, for a longer stay, I would look for a more traditional woodsy campground.

$14/night is the Passport America rate, this park accepts CASH only, be prepared. Beautiful, clean, park as described below. Brand new laundry facilities that worked better than any other park I've stayed in, $2 wash/$1.50 dry and dry in one cycle. There are a couple of sites that have cable hookup, I can't imagine that any broadcast channels are available at this remote location. This park really slows down after Labor Day, we were the only ones there the last day of our stay. They do keep a few sites open all year. Check for road closures and plan your trip accordingly, access to Mt St. Helens is not available on FS25, and it's a long way around to the other side. You can make a nice loop visiting Rainier from here via Morton. I would stay here again if in the area.

We stayed at a waterfront site with the weekly rate. There is no beach to speak of, not in a conventional sandy sense. At high tide the water is up to the wall, at low tide the gravel and vegetation beach is exposed. The beach front sites are feet from highway 101 with no sound or privacy barrier. Fortunately, the highway sees little traffic at night, so it wasn't too bad. Crystal clear cable with over 60 channels. WiFi is free, signal strengh was weak, but strong enough to connect and worked most of the time. We had the best camper neighbors at this park. I would, however, try a different park closer to the Port Thompson/Port Angeles area.

Lots of trees and shade. Great place for kids if you got them. We had a large, level, pull-thru site. As stated earlier, no cable or wifi at your site. Firewood available for $5 delivered, but it was fresh and burned poorly. Staff was friendly and effecient. One of the most beautiful areas in all of North America.

Nice campground with big sites. WiFi was $3/day or $15/week and worked flawlessly. Large laundry with reasonable wash/dry fees. I would rate this park higher, but the noise from the busy road next to the campground and the trains running all night long shook my motorhome! Even with the noise and trains, it's a nice place and I would stay here again.

A gem of a park so close to Seattle. On a lake surrounded by trees. Nice and quite. Interior roads and sites are paved, but not level, with a thin line of shrubs between the narrow sites. Cleanest bathroom I've ever seen! Easy access to I-405. Cable TV only has a few channels which don't come in so well. Laundry is $1 to wash and a $1 to dry, but takes 2 turns to get your clothes completely dry. There are two walking paths around the park. If I'm ever in Seattle, I'm staying here!

Nice park. Owners were very helpful and nice to chat with. Our site was long enough for our motorhome and pickup truck, however, the sites are not very wide. Full hookup included w/e/s/c/wifi with no additional charges. I would camp here again if in the area.

This is the nicest of the NP campgrounds. Lots of trees for shade and hookups in good condition. Paved interior roads, however, are in poor condition. Staff are just kids acting as clerks. They did not have any info on the area and could barely direct us to our site. Some sites share utilities, which forces you to park right up against the other camper to reach, so be sure they don't stick you in one of these unless you like that sort of thing. Banff is small and crowded and expensive, so stuff your wallet before you leave.

Great little campground about 2 miles from the entrance of Glacier NP. Long, wide pull through sites. Breakfast available daily as well as pies and other sweet treats. They have a community campfire nightly. Discounts for staying multiple nights. This campground really seems to bring out the friendliness in everyone who stays here.

This is an average park with an above average price. There's no grass, it's all weeds and bushes, but at least the weeds were cut. We were in a pull through site that was level and had the W/E/S at the right spot. Most campers were in and out after a night or two. We spent 6 nights. The staff accommodated our late arrival after having to delay our arrival for RV service in Idaho Falls. Wifi worked about 85% of the time. Washers and dryers are dated, but there's a nice laundrymat in town. There's a gameroom with ping pong, foosball, and video games, and a small pool. It's a haul to Grand Teton NP from here, about 30 miles total including 4 miles of 10% grade up and another 4 miles of 10% down, repeat for the return. There's some excellent hiking on the west side of the Tetons, just a few miles from the campground in the Targhee NF and Jedediah Wilderness, without the crowds of the NP. Also, there's miles and miles of motorized trails on the Big Hole Mts of the Targhee NF between Victor and Driggs. The NF ranger station is in Driggs and they were very helpful and had good maps available. The campground staff kept the park clean and emptied the trash bins daily. It's not a bad spot for visiting the area.

Best staff of any campground I've ever stayed at! Park is well laid out and easy to get around and find your site. They have 4 registration lanes separate from the main in/out access, the dump station is also separate from both of the above, which keeps traffic moving well. There seems to be a lot of turnover here so the layout is excellent. There's washers and dryers located in the bathhouses throughout the park, $2 to wash and $.25/10 min to dry. I thought the park was very expensive for what you get, but everything in Yellowstone/West Yellowstone is expensive ($21 for a large pizza for instance, don't be looking for the dollar menu at McD's either). It's a short walk or bicycle ride into town, which is very nice. Be aware, you are only 4 blocks from the entrance to YNP, but it's 14 more miles to the closest visitor's center, so no matter where you're going in YNP, it's a 28 mile round trip to get to the main loop road. All that being said, it's a beautiful campground and the staff is the best. Yellowstone is AWESOME and I would definitely make Grizzly my base camp for my next visit.

Nice park with lots of shade. There are 2 hots tubs and a pool. We used the hot tubs every night and it was a great place to hang and chat with the other campers. Typically game room and bicycle rentals for the kids. They have breakfast and ice cream socials every day. There is also small KOA store with groceries/beer/shirts/etc. Wal-Mart is just a couple of miles down the road. Montana's largest RV dealer is within a mile. The main road, Reserve St., is very busy and the traffic lights take forever, but there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance from the KOA. Wifi access only worked about 40% of the time which was very frustrating, I would have been very upset if it weren't included in the overnight rate. The weekly rate is a bargain for a KOA with these amenities now a days. There are so many things to do in Missoula and the surrounding area we could have easily spent two weeks here. Make sure you go to the visitor center located on the far side of town. They have information on hiking and biking and all the numerous things to do right in Missoula. I would definitely stay here again.

A no frills shade less park right aside of the interstate and right behind a small truck stop. Easy in/out access for big rigs. Mostly overnighters here, but we stayed for a week and got the weekly rate. Good 50A power at our site, which we needed in the 100 degree heat with no shade. Afternoon winds come blowing through every day, so forget about using your awning. Wifi worked well about 90% of the time. Grant-Kohrs National Park is about 1 mile down the road and local attractions, prison, museum, doll house, are about 2 miles down the road. Two small grocery stores are located in town. Laundry room is small and not all washers/dryers were working. I would stay here again if I were in the area.

Most beautiful full service RV park I've stayed in after 8 years of RVing. We had a level gravel site with water/electric/sewer/cable/wifi. We had a concrete patio with fire ring, picnic table, and two person swing under a large tree. Campground has heated pool and hot tub. Laundry facilities in the campground are excellent, big washers, big dryers, ironing board and iron. Breakfast and dinner are available daily in the campground during the summer and the food was good and the price reasonable. If you come into the park from exit 450, it's a quarter mile drive on a gravel road. If you come in from exit 447, however, it's 2.5 miles of good paved road. If this park was a little less expensive, I would have giving it a 10. I would stay here again if in the area.

We stayed at the park for 5 nights. Great location for access to the town of Medora and to Teddy Roosevelt south and east units. Staff was friendly and helpful and guided to and into my site. We had water/electric/sewer/cable/wifi. There was a country/western dual playing live music every night, that was very nice. I would have given the campground a higher rating, but the train runs right by the campground at all hours of the day and night. I would camp here again if in the area.

Nice campground, great hosts! Mostly seasonals sites, so call ahead to be sure you can get in. Right next to the Birch Lake boat ramp and right across from an extensive ATV trail system. Babbitt has supermarket/post office/laundry/gas/bar. Stop at Tanks, for some good food. I would camp here again.

Nice park with a great location on Lake Superior. Indoor pool/hot tub/sauna included with site fee and I used almost every night. However, the pool facility is open to the public, and a lot of locals do use the facility. Wifi access is available for an additional charge, $7/day. Easy to get in and out. Conveniently located to all the great things to do in the area. I would stay here again.

Nice park with big sites. Gate closes at night so be in by 10:00 PM or get an access card. Miles of paved bicycle trails accessible right from the campground. Park rangers were very nice and were helpful in finding groceries and laundry in the area. About 35 miles to Mall of America. In addition to the camping fee, there's a $5/day vehicle fee. Dump station was well maintained, but with a sharp turn on the exit. I would stay here again!

After reading the other reviews of this park, I was disappointed upon arrival. Roads and pads are paved, thank God! There is so much continual traffic going through this place that it would be a giant dust bowl if it were gravel. Of course, gravel roads would be impassible with the large pools of water that collect over them. The paved site pads are just about wide enough for your RV, which means you get to step out of your rig and into the mud when it rains. Just a warning, it's an Amusement Park, so there are screaming kids everywhere! Wifi is available in the park for an additional $5 a day. I would for another campground if I were in this area again.

Not as nice as some of the other COE campgrounds we have stayed at, but a real bargain at $16/night. Easy access from I-80, only 2 miles away. Campground hosts were grumpy and only available at the "pay station" from 6-9PM. I thought that was odd since all the other CoE campgrounds the hosts were at the welcome station from 9-6 or thereabouts. Restroom/shower was in good shape, but looked and smelled like it hadn't been cleaned for a while. 2 big dump stations on the way in/out of the park. They had nice, dry, firewood for $2/6 pieces. Miles of biking trails on both sides of the Mississippi. Great folks at the Iowa visitors center (free wifi) just over the bridge. I would stay here again if in the area.

Great park right off the interstate, 23 miles from St Louis. Level gravel roads and sites. Lots of beautiful, well cared for grass. Not much shade though. Owners are very friendly and have lots of information on the area. Very nice, reasonably priced laundry facilities. They are currently installing wireless internet access. We found plenty of wifi access points in Edwardsville, 6 miles west of the campground. We would definitely stay here again.

Park is in need of a face lift. Paved road through park and paved sites, however, the sites are not level and there was a two foot drop from our pad to our picnic table. Every two sites share and electric and water hookup. The dump station is located in the middle of a steep hill, I had grave concerns about releasing my emergency brake and rolling backward down the hill. Our stay was over Memorial Day weekend and the campground was full. Mostly tents, some sites with up to 5 tents on the site. Campground host site was occupied, but was hardly ever available, and wasn't much help when he was. They have brand new washers and dryers at the bath house that worked excellent. Beach is 0.3 mile hike down a trail from the campground. Private boat ramp to the lake for campers. Nice hiking/biking trail in the park. I would not stay here again.

Beautiful campground, large deep sites, plenty of distance from your neighbors. Campground hosts were friendly and a great knowledge of the local area. We would definitely stay here again if in the Nashville area.

Beautiful, clean campground. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Just purchased by KOA, however, honored our rates at the time of our reservation. Only negatives are that the campsites are close together and entering and exiting the park is very tight.

We used this KOA for an overnight stopover. Friendly staff at checkin. Park was very clean. Roads to the campground are well marked, but narrow and tight. The campground is located on the side of a hill, and we had a steep climb to our pull thru site, however, the site was level and long enough that we could leave our towed pickup truck connected, which was super convenient. Campground is not far from a busy part of I-81, but it was nice and quiet the night we were there. We would stay there again if in the area.

Campground is huge! Large sites, with lots of room between sites. We had 50 amp back in near the lake. We were there on opening day (May 1st) with very few other campers. Park started to fill up for the weekend, but remained very quiet in the evenings. Campground hosts were very friendly and had local maps and knowledge. Beautiful area to visit and a great place to stay. I would give it a 10 if they had sewer hookups available at your site.

Stayed here 3 times, 1 week each, over the past several years. Clean, quite, secure (there's a gate that is closed after hours, they give you the combo to get in). Nice visitor center with large aquarium containing various fish and sharks. Pet's were allowed in the park this year, which must be a new policy. Snorkeling and scuba diving tours are available right from the park, at a slightly lower rate than the private operators on Key Largo. However, I'm sure the boats are packed during peak periods. I dove 3 days with the on site scuba shop this past trip. Nice sized catamaran with head. Each trip was about half full, which was nice, would have been a nightmare if full. I recommend Quiesence if you want small boat diving with personal attention. Cons: bugs bugs bugs. Mosquito's and noseeums are so bad, you can't be outside, especially at dusk. I had ant infestations in the RV each time I've been there. Good luck getting in without a reservation during the busy seasons. Some sites can be pretty tight for big rigs. All that said, it's a great value in the keys. I'll be back for 3 weeks next year.
